tie. cnn, rasmussen and our own fox news. six have obama winning, that includes pew, nbc, abc, cbs. two have romney winning, one is from shocker the liberal outlet, national public radio. when you average them all together as "real clear politics" does, you get president obama winning by maybe half a percentage point. yet the average obama win in various polls is 2 points. and average romney margin is 3 points. while the "gallup poll" has romney up by five points the poll by the liberal "national journal", has obama up by five points. go figure. add to that the controversy over some polls overrepresenting democrats in their sample. the entire thing is one big question mark. "wall street journal" though says you get a good picture averaging passel of polls all together. in '08 average of recent polls had obama ahead of mccain by 7.6 percentage points. obama did win by exactly that. we have a little bit higher percentage than forecast. in the last election the "rasmussen poll" was pretty on tar get in predicting obama's margin of victory. so what is rasmussen saying now? yesterday it
